Syracuse was first known to the Indians as Webster's Camp and Webster's Landing in 17S6. 
From 1796 to 1809 it was known as Bogardus Corners. In 1809 the name was changed to 
Milan; again in 1812 to Salina. In 1S14 the town came to be known as Cossits' Corned, and 
three years later as Corinth. It was not until 1824 that the place received its present name 
of Syracuse. It was incorporated as a village, April 13, 1825, and as a city, Dec. 1 5, 1847
